Now that school is out, a lot of kids are looking for things to keep them busy this summer.
Several are grabbing their bikes, scooters and skateboards and heading to a local skate park.
Going up and down slopes isn't easy, and it can be dangerous. But Warren County Skate Park has rules that are strictly enforced.
The park attracts skaters from all over the world.
"There are different types of ramps and bowls and the layout here. It challenges a kid whether you're just learning or one who's skated for many, many years," said Parks and Recreation Director Dan Lenz.
But everyone must abide by the rules.
"The number one rule here is to wear a helmet," said Lenz.
Bikers and skaters at the park must wear helmets at all times. And some say, they don't just do it because they have to.
"I've been riding bikes for like 10 years, I've seen a lot of people get hurt. I've heard a lot of horror stories. You don't expect to get hurt. It just happens," said biker Stephen Bowling.
And parents agree.
"He needs to wear a helmet no matter what. If he doesn't wear a helmet, he's not allowed to ride his skates," said parent Viviana Dotson.
And not having a helmet isn't an excuse. Bikers and skaters can rent them at the park.
"The Parks and Recreation during summer months, our concession stand to our left, offers helmets for free. You just need to show an ID," said Lenz.
And if something does happen, bikers, skaters and parents say they look out for each other.
"In case an accident happens or something, there needs to be someone nearby," said Lenz.
Parks and Recreation also said they're working with other Parks across the state to come up with a way to enforce a fine if bikers or skaters who aren't wearing proper safety gear.
The park is just about two years old and so far, they haven't had any bad injuries.
It's also monitored by camera survelliance so if anything does happen, police know immediately.
